Adam Burniston’s Forecast | Active pattern returns Monday
LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - While we have had a beautiful weekend so far across the Commonwealth, an active pattern looms around the corner as another cold front approaches the area with gusty showers and another blast of Fall air.
We’ll keep the pleasant conditions going through your evening and night ahead with a slightly more mild feel. Temperatures will slowly cool through the 60s tonight and end up in the lower 60s through the overnight. Breezy winds will also be stick around throughout tonight, which will help keep the fog threat low. Otherwise, a mix of clear and cloudy skies will be with us.
By Monday morning, temperatures will begin the day again in the lower 60s and upper 50s. A few scattered showers will start out the day, but those rain chances only increase as we continue throughout the afternoon and evening hours. Gusty winds will pick up throughout the day with sustained winds of 10-15mph likely and then gusts could get to 35+mph at times. Once the cold front arrives from the northwest in the later evening hours, we’ll have more widespread showers and thunderstorms. Some storms could become severe, but it is a relatively low-end threat for now. Temperatures will also take a big swing, going from the 70s and even 80s, all the way down into the 50s.
A few showers will remain around for Tuesday but primarily stay in eastern Kentucky. Then a semi-drier pattern arrives for the middle part of the workweek with temperatures in the lower 60s and upper 50s. Another weak front will move through Friday potentially bring some isolated showers, but it mostly continues to cool down even further. Some mornings could feature a frost potential only if we can get clear skies and calm winds by the end of the week.
